La Cocodrila

Latinx jazz pianist Deborah “La Cocodrila” De La Torre announces the world premiere of her debut album “Coño! (But With A Swing),” featuring eleven original tracks which she composed, arranged, performed and produced.

The album’s unique Latin Jazz sound demonstrates Deborah’s distinctive composing and arranging skill, blending genres and Latinx regional influences in edgy ways, sometimes breaking the rules of jazz or classical or both. Her aggressive command of the piano while she thrashes out strenuous rhythms, jagged scales and chromatic chords have earned her the well-deserved nickname “La Cocodrila” (The Lady Crocodile).*

With her on the album are Ron Bland (bass) and Thomas A. Blomster (percussion), Patricia Surman (flute), Dave DeMichelis (electric guitar), Randy Runyan (trumpet) and Rodney Farrar (cello).
